              With the rapid development of the Internet of Things, a gap has emerged in skills versus knowledge in an industry typically segmented into hardware versus software. Practitioners are now expected to possess capabilities across the spectrum of hardware and software skills to creat...e these smart devices. This book explores these skill sets in an instructive way, beginning at the foundations of what makes smart technology smart, addressing the basics of hardware and hardware design, software, user experiences, and culminating in the considerations and means of building a fully formed smart device, capable of being used in a commercial capacity, versus a DIY project. Practical Smart Device Design and Construction includes a set of starter projects designed to encourage the novice to build and learn from doing. Each project also includes a summary guiding you where to go next, and how to tie the practical, hands-on experience together with what they have learned to take the next step on their own. What You'll Learn Practical smart device design and construction considerations such as size, power consumption, wiring needs, analog vs digital, and sensor types and uses Methods and tools for creating their own designs such as circuit board designs; and wiring and prototyping tools Hands-on guidance through their own prototype projects and building it alongside the projects in this book Software considerations for speed versus ease, security, and basics of programming and data analytics for smart devices Who This Book Is For Those with some technical skills, or at least a familiarity with technical topics, who are looking for the means and skills to start experimenting with combined hardware and software projects in order to gain familiarity and comfort with the smart device space.

              Build interactive, database-driven websites with PHP 7, MySQL 8, and MariaDB. The focus of this book is on getting you up and running as quickly as possible with real-world applications. In the first two chapters, you will set up your development and testing environment, and then... build your first PHP and MariaDB or MySQL database-driven website. You will then increase its sophistication, security, and functionality throughout the course of the book. The PHP required is taught in context within each project so you can quickly learn how PHP integrates with MariaDB and MySQL to create powerful database-driven websites. Each project is fully illustrated, so you will see clearly what you are building as you create your own database-driven website. You will build a form for registering users, and then build an interface so that an administrator can view and administer the user database. You will create a message board for users and a method for emailing them. You will also learn the best practices for ensuring that your website databases are secure. Later chapters describe how to create a product catalog, and a simple e-commerce site. You will also discover how to migrate a database to a remote host. The final chapter will demonstrate the advantages of migrating to Oracle's MySQL 8. You will be shown step by step migration directions along with a demonstration of the tools available in SQL Workbench. Because you are building the interactive pages yourself, you will know exactly how MySQL, MariaDB, and PHP all work together, and you will be able to add database interactivity to your own websites with ease. What You Will Learn Build a secure database-driven website using PHP 7, MySQL 8, and MariaDB Create a product catalog Write a message board Move towards e-commerce Employ security and validation measures Migrate to Oracle's MySQL 8 Server platform Who This Book Is For Web developers with HTML, CSS and a limited Bootstrap experience.

              Programming Reactive Extensions and LINQ
               

              Programming Reactive Extensions and LINQ (Trade Paperback / Paperback, 1st ed.)

              Pro Reactive Extensions is a deep dive into the next important technology for .NET developers: Reactive Extensions. This in-depth tutorial goes beyond what is available anywhere else to teach you how to write WPF, Silverlight, and Windows Phone applications using the Reactive Ext...ensions (Rx) to handle events and asynchronous method calls. Reactive programming allows you to turn those aspects of your code that are currently imperative into something much more event-driven and flexible. For this reason, it's sometimes referred to as LINQ for Events. Reactive Programming hinges on the concept of the Observable collection--as opposed to the simple Enumerable collection we're all familiar with. For example, to extract data from a collection and add it to a list box, you would traditionally iterate through the list box, extracting each object in turn. This approach works fine, but it requires you to know a lot about the data you're working with, which can limit you. In Rx programming you are, instead, informed about each object in turn and are then free to react to each notification however you like, which gives you much greater flexibility. This book shows you how Reactive Programming can be applied to a range of situations--from WPF applications to Windows Phone apps--to improve your coding efficiency and boost performance. What you'll learn Learn how to create, debug and manage reactive extensions in many situations Understand the Observer pattern and how it can be applied to your projects Avoid spaghetti code by using Rx to manage your asynchronous methods Use SelectMany to explore the heart of the Reactive Extensions Get to grips with the Reactive UI Framework for building both small and large applications Who this book is for This book will be of most benefit to existing .NET developers with a grounding in WPF, Silverlight and C# who want to take their skills further using this powerful approach.
